the civil war, and in an environment where staff leadership is important for the development of plans for the brigade level, we've got work to do to build a leadership. there has been an increase in the last several months of attrition in the army. the afghans are getting after that. in their view, much of the problem is associated with leadership and the conditions under which troops are living. to their credit, they're working hard to get after those attrition numbers by ferreting out the leaders that need to go, but also closely examining the environment in which the afghan troops are living. i do not have concerns about the afghans fighting. the individual afghan is a brave policeman or soldier. the issue is not that necessarily. andreproduce leadership coherence that capability is that can take advantage of this inherent martial spirit that we find in the afghan individuals and produce coherent fighting units of that. we've got a lot of work to do to build the professionalism of the afghan army. this is a very new army. euphemistically, we're building this airplane while it is in

, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to mak
